Recently announced by ESL Gaming, the world’s leading platform for esports, DreamHack Open will return in 2021 with seven tournaments totaling USD $700,000 in prizes. Currently underway January 27-31, the first tournament will be split between the European and North American regions with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) players battling it out for the USD $100,000 prize pool.
Below is the 2021 Dreamhack Open Schedule:
The DreamHack Open is part of the ESL Pro Tour (EPT) for CS:GO, which combines multiple, previously unconnected ESL and DreamHack tournaments into dedicated circuits that build towards grand championships each year. The seven tournaments form the Challenger level of the ESL Pro Tour for CS:GO, and follow last week’s announcement of all 2021 EPT Masters and Championship events. The Challenger level aims to create a more complete path for aspiring victors, and offers a more compelling story, and transparent structure, for new esports fans.
“This first DreamHack Open Online of 2021 represents a crucial part of the ESL Pro Tour for CS:GO,” said Shaun Clark, ESL Pro Tour Director at ESL Gaming. “ESL and DreamHack share the same vision of creating an open-ecosystem that provides aspiring players the platform to succeed, following the path from ‘zero to hero.’ Following in the footsteps of what we’ve announced, we are excited to release the entire year’s worth of competition with a roadmap to return to live events.”
